Readers have zero patience.
And thousands of ads and articles torpedo your reader every hour.
So—if you want to be heard—you’ll have to fight for your reader’s attention.
Whether you’re creating marketing copy or telling a personal story, you’ll need to keep your reader aching to know what comes next.
And that is hard.
Maybe your writing is
- too wordy or jargony,
- lacking excitement, or
- not relevant to your reader.

“‘Ridiculously thorough and professional’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Niels. For the past years I have the pleasure of working with Niels as his direct manager in a fast pace, challenging and demanding data-driven environment. I am always impressed by Niels’ ability to maintain high quality and meet high standards. Niels made sure his editorial knowledge was shared with the entire team. Would he go after a new adventure, he will be sorely missed by his peers. Niels would be a great asset to any client requiring a professional content writer with high-quality, thorough, and creative skills. My heartfelt recommendation!”~ Julie Ran (Team Manager, Innodata)

Niels has the three qualities that I believe are must-have traits for editors in the corporate space. His command of language and writing is strong. He also learns fast, which is critical for editors as they consume and improve content from diverse internal stakeholders. But, I think most importantly, he’s good at explaining why he edits the way he does. Writing is not always an easy task for many of our internal clients. Our jobs are often to help colleagues and leaders within our organization communicate more clearly and effectively. When you have strength in explaining how an edit helps our internal clients accomplish their mission of clear and effective content, the editor and the company wins.~ Daven Rosener, Founder at AmplifyIC | Chief Communicator at GreenMegaphone

“A friend recommended Niels on the same day a colleague pointed out the paper I was working on needs some editing. Several emails and drafts later left the paper fresh and crisp despite the cumbersome content. I highly recommend the quality of Niels’ editing service and his communication skills in figuring out where I want to go with this piece of writing.”~ Thomas Groenveld, PhD (Ben-Gurion University, Israel)
